US Beef BAN LIFTED...:-)

Breaking news. US lifts ban to CA beef. Montana's obstructionist politics have delayed this too long anyhow. US finds their own case of BSE........and shortly thereafter the ban is lifted.

dirty politics rule over any genuine safety concerns.---as per usual.......but still a step in the right direction. Hopefully this will go a ways to settle things down a tad.

We should refuse to allow their beef into the country... we could then boost the economy, and not have to worry about government dollars needed. Think about it. With all the fast food joints around, If they had to use canadian beef, the industry would skyrocket! That's called taking care of our own

I like the way you think manda It's far past time we started looking out for ourselves instead of having to play these silly trade games every couple of years.

agree. decrease reliance on the US market. Enough of this getting jerked around , under the guise of what ever spin they put on it. Montana in particular has been a thorn in the butt for some time now. Furthermore they sure don't give a damn about anyone else except themselves and their bottom line. enough of this one sided crap........time to make a few subtle and not so subtle changes.

It's not that I think that we should try to impoverish any other nations, but why see ours suffer. Charity begins at home, so I'm told, and I would rather see farmers in my country flourish, than wither out because we choose to import what is readily available in front of our noses, be it beef, potato's , lobster, wool,lumber,oil, whatever. Why go elsewhere when we have our own supplies to meet our demand, and see our own economy grow,reversing the down trend that it has seen. I don't understand why our politicians, who are supposed to be looking out for our best intrest, won't realize this

I wouldn't want to see anyone impoverished deliberately either but if ANY other country decides they want what we have, they have to realise that we have our own system of doing things that may be different from theirs. If they get themselves into contracts that are later found to disadvantage their own industry then the only recourse would(should) be to honour the contract and not renew. (NAFTA, anyone?) I am thinking of stumpage fees and our BSE testing system (which ironically the U.S. is implementing almost to the point of plagurism(sp?))

Another very controversial thought would be our oil supplies. We produce the stuff and should be supplying our populous with it at almost cost like the ME countries do. The U.S. saves a bundle on the shipping from Canada to the U.S vs. ME to U.S. so why not bump our prices just slightly to cover the reduced profit from domestic sales? It'd still be cheaper for the U.S. ,or at worst, equivelant to the prices paid for overseas oil.

plagarism. I believe that we should all take a step back and examine how much each country really needs to import from other countries. Screw friendly deals and ties with other nations, worry about feeding the people you represent first and then ship in only what is needed. Can we charge the US with plagarism? I know that you can be expelled from University. There should be some consequence

good points. in other words take back the power and independance , maximize and develope what one has , employ our own people etc.

immigration laws might need some re-evaluation. Making sure Canadians get first dibs at jobs etc.

Bang on. I m sure I could find a better job if this system was implemented, allowing me and Many others to better provide for their families. Instead, I sit in a call center.

common sense governing? well, wouldn't that just blow the worlds politicians out of the water :P Funny how the things that seem to make the most sense are exactly the things that world leaders seem to avoid. Purposely perhaps? meh, goverments as they are just make me want to vomit.

I "swear" that when politicians go to "politician" school , the first thing they are taught (brainwashed) is to forget common sense and logic. Next they are orientated /hooked up to the spin machine........ and the end product is a cunning , manipulative ,lying SOB. Whom we , are foolish enough to vote into power.

jolly good stuff folks. First item on the agenda: Construct a fast tram between both planets..

the more I think about it , the better I like it. "they" want to control THIS planet so much......why not send them to another and they can call it their own. Heck , would even rename the planet as US of Pluto/ Jupiter or whatever. Not sure an immediate neighboring planet would be a good idea.....as sure as heck they will continue to send bombs here.

I see the appeals court that released its ruling tore a strip off that moron judge in Montana.

EDMONTON -- A Montana federal judge used "alarmist findings," gave "baseless" criticisms and was "premised on legal error" when he banned Canadian cattle imports because of the mad cow scare, said the appeals judges who overturned his ruling earlier this month.

this "judge" is a real moron. ( he does not even sound like a judge or a rational /logical legal type) Gotta wonder if he is bought and paid for by the Montana Cattle group.

He is probably elected and the cattle industry finances his campaign. I wonder how one could find out? Nevertheless I will see if I can.

He is not elected. He was promoted Sept 4 2001. He had to be nominated by the US President and confirmed by the senate.
